A-Bolt strength

If one were going to buy a large magnum caliber like the .375 H&H, and had to choose between the A-Bolt Medallion and Winchester 70, which one would he be best off with? Is there anything about the three locking lugs of the A-bolt that makes it stronger or weaker for magnum calibers than the two lug bolt of the m70 or Ruger m77? Thanks.

i dont believe you'll ever run into a strength issue with either the model 70 or the A-bolt. i would base the decision on how well the gun fit me and how well i like the rifles cosmetics.

Both should be fine, but if you would like to run the numbers yourself, check this out. I found it on Lilja's site under articles. I's an (DETAILED)article on how to calculate bolt -lug strength.http://www.riflebarrels.com/articles...g_strength.htm[/url]

I have both the Model 70 and the Browning A-Bolt Medallion with BOSS in .375 H&H. Of the 2 I prefer the Browning. As was said strength isn't an issue with either gun, it's just the Browning is more accurate and a lot better looking of a gun in my opinion. I also like the shorter bolt lift of the Browning A-Bolt.
